that happens, most likely iranian supported elements started this. >> obama administration backs israel. is president obama standing with israel as in your judgment as he should? >> yes. so far he did. in the sense that he has no other option. no american president can come and say i'm with hamas against israel. he is with israel against hamas. at the same time this is the worst time for explosion to occur in the middle east. we know our situation in. we have an economic situation. ee needs unity in congress that is support of israel. we have the benghazi hearing. we may have to look at our national security doctrine. we have an arab spring that is being taken over by islamists. so putting that pressure that the u.s. can only do this and not more. >> gregg: hamas runs the authority in gaza. it's also a terrorist organization. it is recognized as a terrorist organization by the united states. hamas refuses to recognize israel, it's charter to this day vows the destruction of israel. does the international community including importantly the united nations need to stop supporting the hama
tries to be nonparents, we said that al qaeda has deputy decimated by the obama administration. even if she couldn't talk about it because it was classified, she knew there was a possibility that al qaeda was very much involved in this. that is part of the reason why they say they are continuing to blame this on politics. not maybe as extreme as what we heard from the congressman. >> what is your assessment of rice on the sunday talk shows? >> the talking points were not entirely accurate, and she made this sound much clearer than the talking points she was probably given. >> thank you very much. >>> coming up, explosion, fire on an oil platform on the gulf. how much oil has spilled, next.

be eager to help if the reelected obama administration wanted to take the lead and kickstart a process that deserves to be called a peace process. we certainly hope that would have been. with regard to the drug problem, i just want to add that of course everybody is now buying drones, even european armies are buying drones. but interestingly enough, as are injurious to countries in other parts of the world has declined because of the not so successful experience in over the last decade. i hope i'm correct i cannot recall a moment in recent history where in the absence of, you know, act of u.s. leadership or participation, the europeans are contemplating driving up plans right now for a military mission to molly. with the argument that what is going on in molly could he not necessarily, but could develop into something very similar to the kinds of phenomena that forced us into afghanistan a decade ago. so what i'm trying to say is the birth of the drug technology matters, i don't believe international development will allow us the luxury of keeping the boys home. there will be unfortuna
the obama administration that we would approve this pipeline. we're going back to d.c. on sunday to thousands of us to remind the white house we haven't forgotten. >> i want to talk about the pipeline. i do think there's good news on the horizon and some kind of breakup in some of the political stalemate that we've seen right after this break. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. >>> the keystone pipeline is a pipeline that would bring tar sands oil from canada down into the u.s. and tar sands oil is particularly toxic. carbon intensive stuff, right? it's ot not the easy light sweet crude. >> disgusting i think is the technical term. >> it's disgusting stuff but it's valuable. that's why they're pulling it out and bring it down. it turned into a political football. >> they're bringing it to the gulf coast to export a lot
thinks that government comes down to. because the things he was describing that the obama administration did, that is called governing. >> yeah. i think -- same question to you, david, why would he use words like this? i think it's the way he thinks unless he's being scripted. 47% was unscripted. this was unscripted. this could be the pure romney. >> you know, chris, i was the first guy in the media to see the 47% remark. when i saw it, i couldn't believe it, but i thought maybe there was a slight chance that maybe he was saying it to play up to that crowd. he knew that's what they wanted to hear. but now when we hear how he talks about voters, he didn't just say, yes, they were bought off that, obama won their votes through bribery. he said i ran a campaign of big ideas, but these other people out there, they don't care about it. they're just in it for themselves, so they are the moochers, they are victims who are looking at who will pay them the most. in the end what happens, mitt romney portrays himself as a victim of the victims. it just confirms all the worst impressions from the 47
at the performance of susan rice, among others, and the obama administration, and so, harry reid sent a letter yesterday and told john mccain he is not going to get the special committee he wanted. but i think the administration simply is going to have to watch republicans spend their energy on this. david petraeus tried to make the argument, defending susan rice, that she was repeating talking points, that she'd been given for the reason that the administration did not want to alert terrorist groups that we knew that they were behind the attack. i'm not sure that that's going to quiet the criticism. we're just going to have to see how long it plays out. >> you saw the meeting yesterday with the president and congressional leaders on the fiscal cliff. how confident are you that a compromise will be reached in a timely fashion? >> pretty confident, actually, alex. you know, i thought the outcome of that meeting was about as positive as you could hope to see from a bipartisan meeting of congressional leaders with the president of the united states, all four leaders, pelosi, mcconnell, reid, boeh
's being held at the state capitol. >> at that forum republican leaders warned the obama administration it's using mind control to manipulate all of us. we show the forum, that was all caught on camera. >> how psyched was the guy at the cbs station in atlanta who was asked to make that graphic for that segment, right? okay, we're going to need a graphic that has president obama on it. okay. and since he's president, maybe throw in an american flag. okay. what's the theme? it's about mind control. so give us something with president obama and a flag and the words "mind control" and whatever other imagery might get across the mind control idea at a glance. amazing. the story was based on this video shot by the group better georgia inside a four-hour-long seminar conducted by the republican caucus in the georgia state senate. republicans are the majority in there and the state senate president convened this four-hour event for republican senators to learn about how president obama was using cold war era mind control techniques to trick americans into turning ourselves over to the united natio
known as myanmar. burma has received the support from the obama administration for its efforts to restore democracy. along with myanmar, the four-day trip will include stops in tie land, cambodia, where he will attend east asia summit. >>> an update on that search for the missing oil rig workers following the explosion in the gulf of mexico. the coast guard is saying it plans to broaden its search for the two men. those who survived the blast were badly burned. it's believed the fire began when a torch was used to cut an oil line. officials were saying they believe an oily sheen in the water is residual oil from the platform and not an oil leak. >>> a new effort by the tsa aimed at reducing the long wait time to airport security checks may offer passengers some relief during the busy holiday traffic season. but now one tsa official is admitting there is a flaw in the system. now more on this story. dominic, what can you tell us? >> that's right. the tsa set up a travelers program about four years ago called precheck. what it does is it prescreens passengers so that when they go
to the united nations susan rice did not call the attack a terror strike. but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to down play terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified talking point memo to the point it was changed to the sunday morning talk shows, there is a gap of about 48 hours that we need to account for and understand why it was changed. >> all the intelligence community have told us that initially they recognized there were extremists and terrorists involved, but they thought it came from a protest, that it took them time to sort that out, that there was no political spin in this. >> after the talking points memo left the c.i.a., then went to other intelligence agencies and the white house and the state department and the justice department and then to lawmakers. somewhere in there, the language was changed. rick? >> rick: molly henneberg live in washington. thank you. >> arthel: the white house now reporting that president obama will meet with congressional leaders the week after t
. >>> the battle over benghazi. we're putting in focus this morning as lawmakers try to figure out what the obama administration knew when. the administration came under fire in the immediate days after the attack for blaming it on that anti-islam video. we've since learned that it was an act of terrorism, but what are the reasonable expectations of fast intel in a case like this retired brigadier general mark kimmet joins me now from washington. we live in a society, general, where we're used to getting information instantly, has twitter, facebook, pdas spoiled us that even when information on a national security issue is incomplete or delayed? i mean, there is an uproar. >> well, there may be that expectation, and i think the government needs to be very, very careful as we've seen in this incident of getting out in front of the story, getting out in front of the facts there. has to be some wisdom and maturity before you make pronouncements of national security importance before all the facts are known. >> but in terms of pressure, i mean, what kind of pressure is put on washington for some quic
accuse the obama administration of we is fairly fictitious. for the past several decades, even as coal production was increasing to record levels, because of increased mechanization, replacement of underground mining, and now mountaintop removal that destroys the entire mountains and ecosystems in west virginia and other parts of appalachia, using fewer and fewer workers to do that. the corporations, the fossil fuel companies that have an addiction to fossil-based fuels are the ones destroying the jobs of workers, but we need to find ways to transition the workers into new, productive jobs, better sustainable, and are building the clean energy economy for this country. the other part of this question about antiquated building codes and other restrictions, the caller is right. it is medieval bad -- that homeowners are restricted from putting solar panels on their houses that would be part of a transition. it is simply medieval -- similarly medieval that a company has not been able to build the first large-scale offshore wind farm in nantucket sound because a relatively small number of w
of reporters. and i'm sure for the military and for the obama administration. the investigation, the federal investigation of how paula broadwell, his mistress, obtained all this classified information, all be it right now what we know is a pretty low level of classified information. how did she obtain it. did general petraeus give it to her. did he mishandle classified information is the central question and how that is answered will decide his fate. >> carol, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, gary. >> in today's welcome home segment, a u.s. marine who struggled to readjust to civilian life when he returned from iraq finds a way back to normal. he did it through ballet. he tells his story in his own words. >> i'm romonbaca. i'm a u.s. marine, iraq veteran. i'm also the director of the dance company. i started dancing at a smaller studio. that led to transitioning to larger studios. >> make sure your fingers are articulating. >> as typical american, i took a lot of things for granted. i wanted to see if i could do something totally different than being an artist. had something to prove
moment. i think the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is not coming back again. you have to pick your fights and pick them according to national interests. i think what will be fascinating in the mideast, as you saw in libya, where we got into a discussion, a debate between the republican defense secretary, robert gates, who said there is no national interest here and people like secretary clinton, susan rice and others who said we have a responsibility to protect and not was the argument for going in and -- that was the argument for going in. that argument remains unsettled today, and that is the doubt i think you were picking up on in your question. >> i will make several comments. in europe, a look at it this way. first, when you look at, globally, countries, the united states has had the capability, and even in this period of time, but secondly, it is the united states that has taken the responsibility and stepped forward. i cannot point to another country that has been willing to take that responsibility. having said that, david refers to how we
administration particularly the obama years and whether we are getting any stronger or whether we are in a more precarious position than we have been before. >> host: mary in chris christie, texas, you are on booktv with david rothkopf. >> caller: i find this conversation very interesting. i was wondering if you could comment on the reckoning that is to come a little bit. >> guest: one dimension of the reckoning that lies ahead is the competition between capitalism. right now in the united states coming out of a period where we have in the ascending power, we have been the ones who have sort of set the standard for all markets and governments should work together but clearly the asian economies are thriving and growing faster and their version of capitalism which is a much bigger role for government, which has government playing more of a straw role in picking winners and losers, determining who gets educator and how they get educated, those forms of capitalism seem to be gaining the upper hand in the global debate and we have to recognize if we don't address the flaws in our own system like th
. >> talking about money down the drain. obama administration gave struggling car battery maker 1, 2, 3 systems nearly $1 million the same day it filed for bankruptcy. a company scored a 249-million-dollar grant back in 2009. and applebys is introducing some new spirited items to their menu. they include a chicken and portabella mushroom deal that uses cabernet denny glaze. pretzel with the beer cheese dip. delicious. you don't have to be 21 years or older either. the chain says the booze infused food is available to all ages. alli, it cooks off the alcohol, i do believe. no buzz included. >> i think you are right. you have a future as a waiter. >>. federal housing administration could be latest casualty that continues to limp to recovery. recent audit of the agency predicted loss of $16.3 billion at the end of 2013. for the terrorist full-time in 17 years the fha could need a bailout from taxpayers. so what does this mean for all of us? let's ask real estate expert kendra todd who joins us live from seattle. good morning, kendra. >> good morning. >> so as we just reported. the fha it was just
during the entire bush administration. by the time president obama is rehydrated on january 20th, there's probably about 300 in his first term. cipro is an example of something the united states was worried about defensively, but was only beginning to go ostensibly at the very end of the bush administration. olympic games, program against iran was something that managed to expand considerably until someone made a programming error and got out to the world. special forces is something we've been lying on far more now as a light footprint strategy than we ever did before. with each one of these repulsive discovered that the return curve of when other powers or nonstate actors will have the same technology is shorter and shorter. so you now, we see china, israel, others have drones now. every nymphet drums right now. it's going to be a very short time. before we do with the other side of that. we're already dealing with cyberattacks each and every day on our infrastructure, not the kind in the olympic games, but similar kinds. the answer to your question is it can reinforce existing power
